A Cellular Jammer Dare

The ad for says: Are cellular phones a problem? Then we have the solution for you!

If you remember my rant on cell phone use in restaurants a couple of weeks ago, then you'll appreciate the Curmudgeon's rant on private conversations in public via cell phone. How could he have missed the cool cellular jammer in the Jennifer Lopez movie Enough? She uses it to block her evil ex-husband's call for help while she beats the stuffing out of him. (Maybe all this pop culture knowledge isn't so useless after all.)

Cellular jammers are pretty cool little trinkets. I think we should chip in and get him one, but only if he'll blog about his day-to-day observations as people come in to his favorite coffee spot and try to use their cellular phones. (For a mere $500-$600, you, too, can be cellular free.)

As far as private conversations go, his rant just confirms for me that men just don't talk on the mobile phones in public restrooms the way some women do. I am completely mystified by these women who either don't think their caller can hear toilets flushing in the background or they don't care. Maybe someday soon there will be a personal sized purse jammer. For $100, I'd buy one just to keep the bathrooms call free when there.

Good catch on the already-existing cell phone jammer. Price needs to come down though, as does the size. I envision some sort of keychain-sized device selling for $20-$30. I'd buy a dozen.

And, yes, men do use cell phones in the john. Extremely rude not only to urinal neighbors, but also to the person on the other end of the line who has to listen to all those tinkling and splashing sounds...
